The U.S. Department of Energy’s Wind Energy Technologies Office (WETO) will present a diversified portfolio of early-stage offshore wind research and development research including efforts to advance floating offshore wind on the West Coast. This webinar will feature presentations and discussions on federally funded R&D to advance floating offshore wind technology, analyze the techno-economic potential, and address siting, environmental, workforce development, and grid integration opportunities. The webinar will also highlight work from two WETO-funded projects focused on offshore wind technology and cost modeling, and grid topics.

Talks to include:
– US Department of Energy Floating offshore wind R&D and analysis – Nathan McKenzie & Patrick Gilman (US DOE WETO)
– Floating offshore wind technology and cost modeling – Matt Shields (NREL)
– US Department of Energy R&D to address siting, environmental, workforce development and grid integration challenges -Jocelyn Brown-Saracino & Jian Fu (US DOE WETO)
– Development of Advanced Methods for Evaluating Grid Stability Impacts by HVAC and HVDC Interconnected Offshore Wind Power Plants – Vahan Gevorgian and Shahil Shah (NREL)
